Get to Know HI Austin

HI Austin hostel is laid-back. Way back. Located on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, HI Austin hostel offers a beautiful, tranquil setting where you can relax and unwind while you discover all that Austin has to offer. Borrow one of our yoga mats for your morning sun salutation and then enjoy our free, continental breakfast to fuel up for your day. You’ll meet travelers from around the world in our cool, modern dining room and lounge, but the best way to make new friends is by joining one of our free hostel activities.

HI Austin is about a 25-minute walk to downtown Austin or South Congress Street, but you can also rent one of our hostel bikes or use nearby public transit to get around. Feeling the Texas heat? Take a dip in the all-natural, always cool Barton Springs Pool or try stand-up paddleboarding on the lake.  Our amazing staff will help you find the city’s best tacos and barbecue, and when you’re ready to experience Austin’s world-renowned live music scene, they can tell you how to make the most of your night out from 6th Street to South Congress and everywhere in between.
